Actor Samantha Akkineni has participated in the #SorrySara and #SorryRakul online trend, after a outline by a news channel said that the two actors were named by Rhea Chakraborty as consumers of drugs. The claim has since been rejected by the Narcotics Regulate Bureau, prompting social media users to apologise to the two actors for the misreporting.
On Instagram stories, Samantha shared a post approximately Sara Ali Khan and Rakul Preet Singh not being summoned, and wrote, “#SorryRakul, #SorrySara.”
Times Now had up to now reported that Rhea Chakraborty, throughout interrogation, had named Sara, Rakul and fashion designer Simone Khambhatta, among others, as drug consumers. The outline claimed that the NCB had prepared a list of 25 Bollywood names who would be summoned for further questioning.

NCB deputy director KPS Malhotra, told Free Press Publication that no Bollywood names have been listed to be summoned. He said, “We have not prepared any Bollywood list. The list earlier prepared was once of peddlers and traffickers. It’s getting perplexed with Bollywood. The names have not been zeroed upon.”

Rhea, her brother Showik, Samuel Miranda, Dipesh Swant, Abdul Basit and Zaid Vilatra have all been arrested on drugs-related charges in the ongoing investigation into Sushant Singh Rajput’s death. Rhea has been accused by Sushant’s circle of relatives of having abetted the actor’s suicide and misappropriated his funds. She is currently at the Byculla Prison.
Rhea was once also reported to have told the NCB that Sushant used to smoke marijuana, and that he started smoking while filming Kedarnath, which also starred Sara. “Yes, Sushant used to smoke marijuana, he used to take it even before he met me. He started this throughout Kedarnath. I used to keep watch over him in this branch only. He was once a man of his own choices and nobody could stop him,” she told Aaj Tak in an interview.
